Advanced Engineering Design

The main aims of the MSc in Mechanical Engineering are to introduce you to research, development and practice in advanced engineering design and equip you for professional practice at senior positions of responsibility. Great engineering design turns great ideas into great products. Our MSc in Mechanical Engineering will give you the skills you need to achieve this. Developing the skills to take complex products all the way from idea to fully validated designs, you will use the most advanced CAD packages and learn the techniques required to analyse your work, testing designs in virtual reality to see how they perform and how reliable they are. Teaching is based in our purpose-designed engineering building on the Wheatley Campus. Nb this course was formerly known as Advanced Engineering Design.
